the masses, another big web event happened today, the relaunch of healthcare.gov day two. it marks the official restart of the obama care era and the day the window finally closed for good for republicans trying to kill the thing. from the day obama was elected president, republicans have been determined to block health care reform. they got scott brown elected. they took the law all the way to the supreme court, voted dozens of times to defund or repeal it, shut down the government for 16 days, and obama care survived all of it. irony is that while republicans couldn't kill obama care, the administration almost could. >> good evening. president obama now finds himself compared to president george w. bush, as in the problems with the health care plan have become president obama's katrina. >> but today, the website is now fixed enough that it looks like obama care is really here to stay. the repeal strategy is dead and obama care is out of the icu. according to the administration, the error message rate for the front end of the website is less than 1%. that's down from about 6% last

and workable enough to start promoting it. late yesterday it started with a tweet from healthcare.gov twitter account reporting that 750,000 people had visited the site on monday. while it wasn't perfect, it didn't crash, and right now that's good enough to get the sales campaign off the ground. when the president speaks today, you can expect him to turn to a theme we first heard back when they tried to do this the first time in october. >> let me remind everybody that the affordable care act is not just a website. it's much more. >> remember, the president has been pushing the affordable care act for more than three years, as far back as the summer of 2010 touting early provisions of the law and of course he spent a good chunk of 2012 pitching it on campaign trail. it's critical that the administration fix the politics of this, at least to the point where it's manageable for democrats running in 2014. to do that, the white house will have a coordinated campaign to emphasize the different benefits of the affordable care act. between now and december 23rd, the last day you can sign up in order

, robert, if you were behind the podium today, what would you be saying about healthcare.gov? >> i think what they have said yesterday and clearly with the president being out there today, there is a subtle message that the website is functioning in a much better place because they understand that if they do an event that draws attention to health care and the website that traffic will greatly increase. so they clearly are demonstrating with today's events the necessity, i think, of today's events the digital architecture of healthcare.gov is greatly improved because they have confidence they can talk about the website and it won't crash. >> but zeke, what about the possible pitfalls down the road? should they be seriously worried? the lead story in the "washington post" is that there are enrollment errors people don't even know about and this starting january 1st when they think they are going to get health care could become a problem if they don't have insurance they think they have enrolled in. >> well, i think getting those so-called 834 forms from the website to the insurers and get
